USER REVIEWS

Cyber Link Power DVD software user review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Cyber Link software has become popular with computer manufacturers as it usually comes with any computer that you buy. Released about 16 years ago it is well designed and has been through many changes with the user interface and some functionality changes.

Some of the features include: Blue-ray and DVD playback, DTS-HD channel surround sound, up scaling of DVD,s and standard definition files to HD, GPU-accellerated conversion of 2D movies into 3D Movies and other features as well.

It also has built in support for subtitles with different formats including SSA, ASS, PSB and others allowing the user to have subtitles in their language of choice.

The only downfalls with this piece of software is that if you don't have a HDCP complient computer than you are not able to use the Blu-ray player, things that are also needed for this is a video card, cable and monitor that support Blu-Ray videos if you are using version 11+ and since version 9 there is no support for HD DVD's. Which is a downfall for some users.

Pros

  • Great features right out of the box
  • Comes with most computer systems at purchase for no extra charge

Cons

  • Newer versions no longer have support for HD DVD's
  • Newer versions cant use Blu-Ray formats unless you have the apporpriate hardware and compliences
  • The package that comes pre-installed on most systems is sometimes considered bloatware

The Difference in Quality When Playing Movies or Videos Becomes Noticeable

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, July 25, 2014

I am a huge fan of the Cyberlink PowerDVD 14. For me, it is great program because if the movie that I am watching has no subtitles, PowerDVD is great with that kind of issue. I purchased it because many people said that this is really helpful especially if you love watching movies. If you are going to ask me if I am satisfied with its performance, my answer is totally yes! The thing that I like the most about this version is how the movies look. The quality is really nice. Also, some of the upgrades and other features are great too, such as the Android feature. You can now watch YouTube videos in it which is one of my favorite parts! All in all, I suggest that you should have this program too. It is really good for movies so if I am at your position, I am going to buy it now.

Pros

  • High-definition video quality in all Blu-rays
  • Offers scaling for your DVDs

Cons

  • Does not have live chat
